The globalisation of financial markets and the greater complexity of the products traded on them have led to a growing need for professional experts to measure and manage the risks faced by companies.
This requires a solid quantitative basis for them to familiarise themselves with and apply a range of techniques to assess and mitigate the risks associated with any financial product. In response to this major challenge, in the year 2000 BME Institute launched its Financial Risk Management Executive Master ("mGRF"), which has now become the market standard.
Engineers, graduates in Economics or Business Management with a high quantitative profile, graduates in Physics or Mathematics with at least two years' experience at a company, wishing to secure top-level training in risk management.
It gives top-level financial risk management specialists the chance of obtaining an internationally approved qualification through certification exams: Financial Risk Manager (GARP, Global Association of Risk Professionals) and Certified Risk Manager (PRMIA, Professional Risk Managers' International Association).
BME Institute is the training centre operated by Bolsas y Mercados Españoles (BME). Its courses strive to provide as much knowledge as possible of financial markets and their products. To do so it has the best possible human resources - the BME Institute teachers and BME's professional staff, in addition to experts in other areas of the financial sector and university professors.
